With the coming of the railroad in the late nineteenth century, the town of Phoenix in the Territory of Arizona would experience a rapid inflow of settlers who would call themselves Phoenicians and help to bring about Arizona statehood in 1912. The images collected in Historic Photos of Phoenix offer a remarkable glimpse into the history of this unique desert community. Included among hundreds of photographs are snapshots of the Hotel Adams and Westward Ho, Riverside and South Mountain parks, the Cave Creek Flood of 1905, the Santa Fe Prescott and Phoenix Railway Depot, George Hunt as the first governor of the State of Arizona, the State Capitol, the Phoenix Senators baseball team, Thanksgiving Day 1899, Arizona’s Rough Riders, Camelback Mountain, and countless others.

Published in striking black and white, these images communicate the historic events and everyday life of two centuries of people and two centuries of America. Historic Photos of Phoenix is sure to captivate anyone curious about the region’s past, from the student of history to the local history buff.
